COVID-19: An important announcement

Concern about COVID-19 (coronavirus) has created a rapidly evolving environment where changes are being made quickly in the interest of public health.

Starting Monday, March 16, Henrico County Public Schools will be closed for students for two full weeks of school (through Friday, March 27). We will continue to assess the situation, and decide later if we need to extend this period of closure.

We realize this creates many questions about how students will continue their learning. We have a thorough plan in place, and detailed information about student learning will be communicated in a separate message.

Our teachers and staff will use Monday, March 16, to continue their preparations. “Virtual learning” experiences (digital and non-digital) will be available to students of all grade levels starting on Tuesday, March 17.

During this unprecedented experience, we will continue to do everything possible to ensure the health and safety of our community. The HCPS Facilities and Pupil Transportation departments will conduct additional cleaning of school buildings and buses, and continue to assess the best cleaning practices.

Additionally, for many of our students, the meals provided at our schools are a crucial part of their daily nutrition. Additional plans are being made to address this vital need across the Henrico Community.

Please know that this is not a decision that we make lightly. We realize that any change to educational schedules is disruptive and inconvenient. However, our priority must always be the health and safety of our students, staff members and community.

Again, more details about student learning will be forthcoming in separate communications. Visit the “COVID-19” page on our website for full information from HCPS.

New Variance Deadlines for Middle & High Schools in 2020

New Variance Deadlines for Middle & High Schools in 2020

Elementary & Middle Schools – April 15, 2020

High Schools – February 17, 2020

What is a Variance? School-age children who reside with their parents/guardians in Henrico County are required to attend the school that serves the area in which their parents/guardians live. However, certain circumstances stated in school board Regulation R6-03-011 allow a parent/guardian to apply for a variance for their child to attend another Henrico County school for a single school year. Applying for a variance does not guarantee one will be granted.

Where can I get information or a variance application?

Detailed information can be found in HCPS policy regulations at in “P6-03-011 and R6-03-011 School Assignment/Variance Procedures”. Forms are also available in the main office.

Deadline exceptions per policy:

Exception #1: The parents of a child who move into Henrico County after February 15 or April 15, as applicable, shall enroll the child in his or her zone school and shall have 30 calendar days following the date the student first enrolls in the zone school to submit a completed variance request to the principal of the zone school.

Exception #2: The high school deadline does not apply for students who are eligible to receive a variance due to special program enrollment, such as ROTC.
